My husband and I contribute to all of those in my question, but I’m not sure what the max is we can contribute all together.

    The max for an IRA is 5,000 per year (just went up this year)

    401(k) I’m not sure, but it is well over 10K a year

    401k is $15,500 under age 50. IRA is $5k/yr under age 50, $6k/yr over 50.

    In addition to what steve says, catch up for 401(k) if age 50 or over is $5000, so whoever has that could contribute up to $20,500 if 50 or older. However, it may be less than $15,500 (or $20,500) if there is an anti-discrimination limit (due to average participation). The HR dept. at the employer would have to tell you if that applies.

    The $5000 (or $6000 age 50 or older) is the total contributions for any IRA type per person (ie, total of regular and Roth IRA).

    403(b) is more complicated. The limit appears to be the lower of $45,000 or full year compensation.
